Where did October, November, and December go? I blinked the the latter months of 2010 became a blur. It looks as though I have some catching up to do.Lets time travel back into last year and let me consult my Ravelry notebook, well, because I did try to keep some stuff current.
The end of the summer was time to finish up some sock knitting. I try to keep up without he gals at Sock Knitter Anonymous, but hard as I try, my knitting tools along in the right lane.
Ode to Eames was a colourwork pair that I started in 2009 and after having knit one sock just chocked on the second one. This behavior is not the norm. These two yarns started out as another colorwork sock project that didn't materialize. These, however, while a bit tight, are pleasing and I am glad that I finished. I am trying very hard to knit up the stash from the bottom, that is yarn that I've had in bins and have been marinating the longest. This pattern was a freebie at one time but is now on hiatus and not available. So, if you have the pattern, keep it close!
Knee High to a Grasshopper is an older Rockin' Sock Club installment. At that time Blue Moon Fiber Arts just introduced the Silkie Sock Yarn. While yielding a pretty result, I much prefer their sturdy light or medium weight yarn. I think that these sock won't hold up over time.
I plan on returning this weekend with the next installment of the last quarter 2010. Stay tuned for a trip to Toronto and the Koigu Farm.
